A SOLDIER'S CHANCES.
Some Interesting Statistics Based
Upon Investigations.
The military hospltaal commission
at Quebec has kept an account of
how Canadian troops fared in the war
and has compiled some Interesting
statistics based upon its Investigations.
Addressing Canadian mothers and
fathers the commission says:
if your boy goes to the front:
He has '29 chances of coming home
to one of being kiled.
lie has IIS chances of recovering
from a wound to two chances of
dying.
He has only one chance in 500 of
losing a limb.
He will live five yeass longer because of physical training.
He is freer from disease In the
army than in civil life.
He has be'tor medcal rare at Ihe
front than at home.
In other wars from ten to fifteen
men died from disease to one from
bullets.
In this war one man dies from disease to every ten from bullets. This
proportionately less wasteful of life
than any other in history.
Only len per cent, of all Canadians
disabled for further service have
been physically unfit t o engage in
their former occupations.
If your boy is one of the ten pet-
cent, the Government will re-educate
him in another vocation at which he
can earn a living.
